Mayo Clinic researchers are working to improve treatment with ileoanal anastomosis surgery. Studies cover a wide range of areas, including pouch-related complications of IPAA such as pouchitis, Crohn's disease of the pouch and clostridium difficile infection (CDI); preoperative risk factors for failure of restorative proctocolectomy (RPC) with IPAA; the relationship of weight to successful IPAA surgery; and outcomes of laparoscopic IPAA.


See a list of publications about ileoanal anastomosis surgery by Mayo Clinic doctors on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
